Florida Company Plans to Mint New Global Currency Featuring Likeness of Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pompano Beach, FL – April 1, 2009 -- Cash4Gold, the nation's #1 buyer of precious metals direct from consumers, has unveiled an ambitious and self-serving plan to mint a new global currency known as The Colbert. The company hopes to present its proposal to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner this week.
The new golden coin features the likeness of bespectacled, multi-Emmy Award winning Comedy Central news personality Stephen Colbert on its face. The Colbert is minted at Cash4Gold’s Pompano Beach, FL headquarters using a proprietary gold-nickel-molybdenum alloy known as Truthinessium. It is inscribed "In God We Trust, Everyone Else Pays Cash."
"Stephen Colbert embodies a rare combination of publicity-hungry egomania and confidence-inspiring truthiness that makes him the perfect figurehead for the new global currency," said April Fulstay, Vice President of Comic Genius Relations, Cash4Gold.
Fox News' Bill O’Reilly, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann, and PBS’ Jim Lehrer were each considered for the honor, but were passed over because the prototypes for their coins proved to be too volatile, brittle, and dull, respectively.
Cash4Gold.com is the #1 American buyer of precious metals including gold, silver and platinum from the general public, and one of the largest refiners of precious metals in the nation. Through an efficient and proprietary process, the company has revolutionized its industry with innovations in marketing, customer service, refining, and logistics.
